It's not black for black's sake. It's utilized to demonstrate inclusivity since most kids growing up only wear black equipment because many of them can't afford to pay for the constant color changes of teams that is becoming a trend in minor hockey. At least that's how I've always seen it. It's nice.

It isn't. Black has been part of Canadian National Team identities for a long time, in quite a few sports. I don't know why people think the colours of a team need to match 1:1 with the colours on a flag.

I think they just added a red hem stripe? 

 

I'm searching and it is almost the same jersey they use since 2016 except new font, Canada patch on shoulders and Maple Leafs all over a sleeves:

What are they wearing around their necks? They don't look like neck guards and I've never seen players at that age/level wear neck guards.

 

They’re called chokers. It’s 2018, I’m not judging–Hockey Canada can do whatever they want.

They are neck guards. 
Some have the little "bib" part some are just basically a strip.

That tournament is U-18 so I think that's the highest level that they are mandatory (I could be wrong)
