Uhh, about that custom WB

I went to shoot a hockey game the other night and set a custom white balance. I made a picture of the ice and then selected it as my reference frame for the white balance. It usually works great…usually. Something possessed my camera to produce the color above. For once, chimping actually saved my assignment. I railed off a few frames and then checked on the camera’s LCD to get a rough idea of the color would be like. Boy was I surprised. I switched back to Auto and everything looked fine, so I just ran with it. Anyone else ever come across a custom white balance like this? That frame is basically straight out of the camera. I just resized it so it wouldn’t be gigantic and take up too much bandwidth.
