Following Team USA's thrilling Gold Medal-winning performance in the Inaugural 1996 World Cup of Hockey, the second World Cup was played in 2004.

Eight countries participated in the tournament: Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Russia, Slovakia, Sweden, and the United States.

Expectations were high for Team USA in the tournament's second running after the United States defeated Canada for the gold medal in 1996. After a disappointing group stage in which the team defeated Slovakia and lost to Canada and Russia, the U.S. matched its goal total in the pool stage in a 5-3 quarterfinal victory over Russia but were eliminated by Finland in the semifinals, 2-1.

Prior to the tournament Team USA played three exhibition games: a 3-1 victory over Canada on August 23, 2004 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, OH, a 3-1 loss to Canada on August 25, 2004 at Corel Centre in Ottawa, Canada and a 2-0 victory over Russia on August 27, 2004 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, OH.

Team USA wore its white jerseys on August 23 vs. Canada and August 27 vs. Russia.

Conklin signed this jersey on the back.

Conklin, who played in the pre-tournament but did not dress in the 2004 World Cup, played in the NHL from 2001 to 2012, had 17 career shutouts and spent time with the Edmonton Oilers, Detroit Red Wings, St. Louis Blues, Buffalo Sabres, Columbus Blue Jackets and Pittsburgh Penguins.
