Yes, this is what it means.

Think about points per game. If PPG > 1, how can you have > 100% chance of seeing a player record a point in a game?

For instance, Ovechkin had 65 goals in 82 games in 2008 or 0.79 gpg. However, he scored goals in 47 of those games, which is a frequency of 0.57, so one had a 57% chance of seeing him score at least one goal in a single game.
