For a list of infractions involving game misconducts that are included in the “General Category”, please refer to the Reference Tables – Table 10 – Summary of Game Misconduct Fouls Included in the “General Category”. See specific rule numbers for complete descriptions.
Charging falls under this.

Boarding falls under this.

Felt i needed to quote what I was looking at.
Any rule experts wanna take a gander whether or not McGinn's Charging+Boarding Misconducts get him suspended for 1 game? From the looks of this, its a no.
